Keith Butler Confirms Defense Will Keep Using Over Front

I don’t know if Keith Butler is one of your favorite coaches on the Pittsburgh Steelers but I do think he is one of the most honest and willing to talk X’s and O’s of the big three (Tomlin, Haley, Butler). He had a lengthy Q&A session with the media…
